We are delighted to announce that Health Referral has restarted at Hailsham Leisure Centre. Health referral is aimed at people that have received a referral from their doctor, physiotherapist or self-referral (we may require you to get a GP refferal for some higher risk conditions) and is designed to assist clients in achieving their health goals and to help them become a confident, independent exerciser. Our qualified exercise referral instructors look forward to welcoming back previous clients and meeting new clients to the program.
Regular exercise can help manage and improve many long term health conditions, it is important though, that the exercise programme is appropriate for your condition and of course that it is something you enjoy! Whether you prefer exercising in the pool, gym or in a group class, our instructors will be able to advise what activities will suit your needs.
Current health conditions we can support are as follows:
Osteoarthritis / Rheumatoid Arthritis
Type 2 diabetes (controlled)
Diagnosed Mental health condition (including stress, anxiety, depression)
over 16 years old
not moderately active
de-conditioned through age or inactivity
raised blood pressure
family history of heart disease/diabetes
referral from cardiac rehabilitation schemes (phase lv)
musculoskeletal pain including back pain
chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder-mild/moderate well controlled (asthma, bronchitis, emphysema)
lower back pain
How is it working under Covid restrictions?
